I am a local Gold Coast artist. My recent work is beach paintings. Most of my artwork in the past has been portraits, and from this I have learned close attention to detail aswell as the capabilities of the oil paint medium. My aim for each work is to paint the scene or subject accurately, aswell as making the artwork 'a painting', rather then a photo-realistic representation. I've always loved oceanic scenes, and this has now become my main focus.
